It’s not quite the time to get our hopes up.
But it certainly is a step in the right direction all things considered, and something that should excite Forest fans, particularly if they all feel the same way as this supporter.
Writing in The Athletic, Phil Hay says that Dwight Gayle is ‘likely’ to sign with Nottingham Forest this upcoming window. Stating that his wages would be too much for Leeds United to deal with, the City Ground seems like the most likely destination for the 29-year-old. Now how much of the wage budget would have been taken up by Matty Cash’s new contract, we’ll never quite know.
However the big concern for a number of Nottingham Forest fans, is where he’d fit in if Forest were to bring him in. It would be hard to fit in both him and Lewis Grabban into the same team, so either one of them will have to sit on the bench, or one of the other Forest players will have to be sacrificed.
Neither of them will be happy sitting on the bench if we are gonna play one striker

Play two up top especially at home or 4 3 3 with Gayle Grabbs & Lolley the front 3 but let’s wait and see

Too much of a drama queen for me, could disrupt the harmony of the squad.

I simply don’t think we could. He is far too good to just sit on the bench

I been thinking this maybe behind Grabban but can he play that role?

I wouldn’t change our current formation to accommodate him so he would have to agree to being in rotation with Grabban. Imagine given his record at this level he’ll be popular so if another club guarantees first team football he’d probably choose that option.

Not where you'd want him to be playing given the money we'd be dishing out but he can a job out wide. That's if Lamouchi wants Grabban to remain in the side.

He'd be a sub most games grabbs will still be 1st choice imo

Who would you rather have up front?
Luckily we don’t have to make these decisions.
